The Aurora Borealis is one of the most beautiful spectacles of nature, yet only a very small percentage of us ever get to see the spectacular beauty of the Northern Lights. Japanese mobile users just got even more lucky then they already are with the new Live!Aurora service. For ¥315 ($2.70) a month, customers of the AU network can subscribe to the Live! service to get live streaming video of the Northern Lights in Alaska.
The Aurora Borealis are usually visible in March and April and Japanese users will be able to watch in the afternoon, local time. Subscribers will also be able to save snapshots and clips of their favorite Northern Light display directly to their phone to share with their friends worldwide. If you’re lucky enough to be in the Japanese AU network, check it out. — Andrew Dobrow
